Depression

You might feel sad when you are depressed, but depression is not the same thing as sadness.

Depression is the loss of joy, motivation, and meaning in life. It can happen slowly over time through unhealthy lifestyles and unsupportive environments. It can emerge suddenly after a painful life event such as loss of a loved one or livelihood. 

If you or a loved one are struggling with depression, don’t wait to get help. The best time to plant a tree is ten years ago, but the second best is today. 

Depression is a health issue that can consume you and your life if left unaddressed. Depression is a common but serious mental health issue that impacts every aspect of life – relationships, physical health, work success, and more. 

Dallas Counseling & Treatment Center is here to help. Our depression therapists can give you the boost you need to break out of the cycle.

How can therapy help depression?

Depression is best treated through therapy and medication, although it’s best to start with therapy. Therapy is one of the most effective ways to work through depression and improve your quality of life. Therapy can help you understand the causes and triggers of your depression, challenge unhealthy and unhelpful thoughts and beliefs, develop coping skills and strategies, and set realistic and achievable goals.

At Dallas Counseling, we offer a variety of therapy services to help you overcome depression and reclaim your happiness. Our therapists are trained and experienced in working with clients who have depression. They will provide you with a safe, supportive, and confidential space to explore your feelings and thoughts, and help you find the best solutions for your unique situation.
